“Huge jump from 1998 on the nose. Big, smoky cloud with lots of raw meat character. Very fat and enveloping, like a great big fat flapping lady's embrace . . . . Almost evanescent. Lots of raw meat and some violets. Quite marked acidity. Still very, very fine tannins on the finish. Exotic. The smell of an old leather handbag/purse. Very, very long. Bouquet kept opening out in the glass. Edge of burnt sugar. Much more delicate than you might think.” JancisRobinson.com, Oct 5 2005 (Tasted Mar 11 2004)
Notes: Very top shoulder, lightly scuffed capsule, very lightly scuffed, very lightly torn, very lightly wine stained label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $3,750
